This is the town that embraced Yao and made him one of the most polarizing figures in the NBA. But, Yao was a #1 overall pick that came directly from China.
Yao was a giant
Lin is a Harvard grad who was born in this country and I just do not see the same kind of hype Yao got. The 7’5 center was one of the best in the league for the 8 years he was there. Lin is an average point guard who probably misses the top 15 and he’s going to make $15 Mil in year 3. I became Rockets fan because of the likes of Hakeem Olajuwon (my favorite player of all time), Clyde Drexler, and Steve Francis. In Houston we have been lacking a superstar since Yao and T-Mac could not seem to stay healthy. Now the Rockets built a team on prospects with potential without any kind of superstar. They amnestied Scola although he was probably our best power forward currently, not potential wise. They let Dragic walk for less money than they gave to Lin who he is superior than. Than to top it all off we traded Lowry bec...
BEST OF MAXIM
Knicks fans may need a few days before it officially sinks in, but Jeremy Lin is a Houston Rocket. Between the knee injury last season and New York letting Lin walk in free agency, Linsanity ended about as quickly as it began. With New York’s decision to not match Houston’s $25.1 million offer, Jeremy’s life will undergo yet another rapid change. During an interview with Pablo...
DON'T LET GO
Knicks owner James Dolan reportedly felt "deceived" by Jeremy Lin who opted to sign with the Rockets and leave New York.
THAT'S KOOKY TALK!
Carmelo Anthony strongly expressed his opinion regarding the contract the Rockets offered his teammate and added it's not up to him to decide whether the Knicks match it.
In a stunning development, sources report that the New York Knicks have decided not to match the offer sheet the Houston Rockets presented to Jeremy Lin for $25 million over three years. To soften the departure of Lin, the Knicks … Continue reading →
With news breaking that Raymond Felton was coming back to New York and the team did not have plans on matching Houston’s offer sheet to Jeremy Lin, fans everywhere are surprised. And apparently, some Knicks fans are not happy. At all.
Fans have started a petition to Knicks management to keep Jeremy Lin in town. The Harvard graduate was an instant fan favorite, as he was a huge...
HOUSTON If the general manager of the Houston Rockets were in public office, Daryl Morey would be in big trouble this election cycle. Approval ratings would be way down. And it probably wouldnt even matter whom he was running against.
Are you better off now than you were even one year ago? Morey's opponent might say. No. One year ago you had Goran Dragic. Now you have Zoran...
With the trade to bring former Knicks Raymond Felton and Kurt Thomas back to New York now official, hope that the team will match Jeremy Lin's offer sheet with the Rockets continues to fade.Losing Lin would be devastating, to say the least. His impact and value both on and off the court makes him a key potential piece to the puzzle moving forward. Whether he played alongside...

The New York Knicks troubles continued as the team decides if Jeremy Lin is worth $58.3 million in 2014-15.
The New York Post reports that if the Knicks matched the Rockets offer sheet for Lin, owner James Dolan could pay the $58.3 million because of the new CBA's luxury-tax penalties.
The Knicks seem to have decided to pair Jason Kidd with a cheaper point-guard in Raymond Felton...
It’s looking more and more likely that the Knicks won’t be matching the contract the Houston Rockets gave to Jeremy Lin. In light of comments made by Carmelo Anthony and JR Smith, for chemistry’s sake, it seems like that is probably not a bad thing. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Smith was extremely candid about [...]
NiuBBall: JR Smith’s former CBA team has replaced him with Quincy Douby. This probably doesn’t interest you now, but you’ll chuckle this spring when I tell you how much better they got (you may recall that Smith’s team failed to make the playoffs, something that’s never happened to a Douby-led squad). Fun Fact: Douby set a CBA Finals record when he scored 53 points...
